The COR is always a voting member of the local Council. It is also the
"Chartering Partners" who "supposedly" determine BSA policies and
direction. The COR is the local units *only* leverage with the Council
If CORs go away, this will signal a fundamental and frightening shift in
the BSAs organization. We move further from the notion of a "volunteer
run" organization - that is, if you believe we really are a "volunteer
run" organization now.
